Home Improvements That Pay You Back

Home Improvements That Pay You Back

  1. Remodeling the Kitchen. You can expect to recoup 60%-120% of your investment on a kitchen remodel, as long as you don’t go overboard. You should never make your kitchen fancier than the rest of the house.
  2. Bathroom addition. If your home only has one bathroom, you can recoup a large chunk of your investment by adding another one.  It is estimated that you can recoup 80% – 130% of whatever you spend adding a bathroom.
  3. Adding Square Footage. Adding more square footage to your home with a new room can be an incredibly expensive project. However, you can typically recoup 50% – 83% of your initial investment. Just make sure you keep costs under control.
  4. Adding a Deck. If you make your deck and your backyard more appealing, your house will be more appealing to prospective buyers when you decide to sell. Homeowners can recoup 65% – 90% of their investment by adding a deck.
